The waterfall is busy, keep walking, most people won't then you are alone to enjoy. Did the 1000 steps with a 6 & 9 year old. They loved it. The place is magical. Look out for ticks. My wife got one :(

We tried to park to the Torc waterfall, which was full packed, but found a park on the lakeside parking area, which was along the walking routes. There was not so much signs for the mountain trail, but you'll be fine when you find Kerry way route to Kenmare, the... More

It was a great way to start our hike but it is tough and if your are not up to climbing 2000 feet straight up I would not try this.

We heard afterwards that the mountain walk is called the "cardiac steps" and the phone app told us that we had "climbed" 77 flights of stairs BUT it was worth it. Its an invigorating walk to the summit but you can literally see for miles. This is so much better than stopping at the waterfall like most people seem to,... More

It may not be the highest you've ever seen, but the walk in, up and around is certainly memory making. Very dramatic and oh so very Irish.
